Well I just realized how long it has been since I have posted anything, and man has a lot changed, from windrock and the body damage that it bestowed from another trip as well as upgrades I have done since last winter.:)

I will just put a couple photos up for now and do a full post at the end of October when I have put two more plug wires in the X to have enough power ;)

It's good to see an update on this thing, can't wait to see more of it!
Thanks man! Between the end of august, September, and October it should have another 3-4 posts worth of updates, with possibly a first from my understanding at least in a first gen. At some point I need to come out to one of the two xterra event's and see your rig!

The two plug wire swap was a success! it added another 130hp! Both of them fit surprisingly well underneath the hood of the x.

All Jokes aside I have completed the functional part of the swap (How the front core support will look isn't finished) from an 5.3 05 Silverado. This is mated to a 4l60e and a NP241C. It has been redubbed the LS^x

I have lots of photos to dump and lots to write up over the next week or two, but I wheeled it this past weekend and man was the swap worth it (I have $300 into the swap after selling parts off of my $400 donor truck)

There are some things I am going to come back to and re-do (Like the headers) but it at least works for the momentIMG_3009.jpgIMG_3010.jpgIMG_2998.jpgIMG_3007.jpgIMG_2967.jpgIMG_3016.jpgIMG_3019.jpgIMG_3005.jpgIMG_3003.jpgIMG_3015.jpg
